Marked “AL” (Army of Luxembourg) on top of the receiver, and imported by Inter American Import/Export, this Fabrique Nationale version of Browning Automatic Rifle. This is an exceptionally popular gun for machine gun enthusiasts in the United States due to it being chambered in .30-06. Standard flash hider with all the other refined features as one would expect from the nearly final version of the Browning Automatic rifle: easily adjustable gas port nut, improved and easier to deploy and retractable bipod attached to the gas cylinder, adjustable carrying handle on a quick-change barrel, a lever controlled ejection port cover which opens automatically when the bolt moves either forward or to the rear, a magazine well cover which folds easier into a recess below the gas cylinder, a more positive and ergonomic magazine release, a pistol grip, and a swing-out buttstock assembly which allows easier access to cleaning the receiver and dealing with any stoppages. The rifle also incorporates a flip-up buttplate and has provision for a monopod at the bottom of the buttstock. Belgian proofs on left side of receiver with both Belgian and “BNP” proofs on matching numbered barrel. 3-position selector, “M” (fast automatic fire) at the forward position, “R” (slow automatic fire) in the center, and “S” (safety) at the rear. Visible numbers are matching on barrel, receiver, and handgrip. 3 magazines and 1 original olive-brown painted tripod included with this lot. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is near excellent as refinished with a slightly plumb color to the hardened receiver. Wood is extremely attractive, smooth finish, with some slight bruising to the forearm, with a couple of small gouges, where bipod feet touched the wood. One of the site protective ears is slightly bent inward. This is an easy fix for a qualified gunsmith. Tripod is extremely fine and appears serviceable. Bore is extremely fine, shiny, and bright. Bolt face extremely fine. Gun mechanics are crisp. This is a Full-Auto only (fast and slow) machine gun. The FN-D (for dismountable barrel) is one of the most popular and comfortable to shoot of the Browning Automatic Rifle family. No doubt, a discerning collector/shooting enthusiast will snap this specimen up. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS ONLY ELIGIBLE FOR TRANSFER TO ACTIVE FFL/SOT DEALERS AS A PRE-86 DEALER SAMPLE.
